A bit about Sarawak Energy...
Sarawak Energy is an integrated energy utility.
This means that they generate, transmit, distribute and retail electricity around Sarawak.
While they remain committed to providing a reliable and efficient supply to our domestic and commercial customers, Sarawak Energy is increasingly involved in the development of new hydropower, coal, gas and transmission projects related to the Sarawak Corridor of Renewable Energy (SCORE).
Sarawak Energy currently operate a 210MW coal-fired steam-turbine power plant located at Kampung Geobilt, Kuching as well as a 330MW gas-fired open cycle power plant in Tanjung Kidurong, Bintulu. Sarawak Energy also operate a coal-fired power station in Matadeng, Mukah with a total capacity of 270MW (135MW X 2 units). On hydro projects, they have also commenced construction of a 940MW Murum hydro-electric project in Belaga, Central Sarawak, expected to come online in 2013.

I've reach the entrance of the Menara around 1.45pm. Beautiful surrounding.
Going up to Level 2 for a short briefing.
Sarawak Energy is run as a business, but pro fit is not their only goal. Their mission captures these broader objectives and responsibilities, and commits them to honouring the trust placed in us by the people of Sarawak, by acknowledging and respecting them and contributing to their well-being; and
harnessing and utilising natural resources in a sustainable and responsible way.
For Sarawak Energy, the term Corporate Social Responsibility means:

Their achieve this by Creating economic opportunities for Sarawakians, Supporting partners in Community Investment, Undertaking our projects in a sustainable way and also Demonstrating high standards of transparency and community engagement.
Ms. Joanne Tan Cho Yian (Manager, Corporate Social Responsibility) told us about they project on Murum Penan Literacy Programme.
Though their intention is only to make them able to read and basic calculation, personally i find it very heart-warming... I hope it will continue forever....
After that we are given the opportunity to look around Sarawak Energy building. Minimalist type i loike! hahaha...
A short tour at their own museum.. but due to we take too much time 'wowing' surrounding - this tour have to be cut short.
